I'm a Substitute

Just tell me you love me and get it over with.” Claire from Elizabethtown. Yes, I love that movie. I just happened to watch it again last night as it was showing in HBO. It was on after watching Step Up. And that movie sucked! (Lying) Boo! (Sarcasm) Those things never happens in real life. I mean, come on. Well, maybe if you’re that good looking, so easy to live in this world. Anyway, I got an overdose of romantic comedy movies yesterday. I even got to watch this Sam Milby and Toni Gonzaga flick where they are both cops and yeah, it’s surprisingly cute and compelling. So lower your eyebrows. I enjoyed it.

My cousin was watching with me for the first two movies, the Tagalog and Step Up. She was laughing because I was eating ice cream while I was watching the first one. It’s the classic scene: watching romantic movies while drowning yourself in sweets. Hehehe. I ain’t depressed. It just happens that it’s my Tita’s birthday yesterday and there were lots of ice cream. I ain’t depressed. I’m lonely though.

San Mig Super Dry accompanied me with Elizabethtown. Most people find it boring. It’s about Drew whose father died and decided traveled to his dad’s hometown to pay respects to his family and all. On the way there, he met this very interesting and quick-witted flight attendant, Claire. Claire is instantly attracted to Drew, and the feeling is mutual. Long story. You’re better off watching it anyway. Why do they find it boring? Because the movie’s progression was kinda monotonous, if you let it. All they did was talk to each other about past experiences and anything under the sun. Yes, you capitalists will find it boring, but if you listen carefully and really absorb everything, you’ll probably relate. I did. Oh, and my major crush on Kirsten Dunst were rekindled. I’m in love with you Kiki. Will you marry me?

Then I remembered, the first time I watched this movie, I realized my fantasy love story. I wanna meet some foreign chick while traveling. She’s hot, she’s articulate, she’s funny, she’s intelligent, we have absolutely nothing in common, and we’re attracted to each other. If only that happens in real life. But nowadays, chances are you’re gonna meet a psycho who will chop your head off and displays it on her garden. Enough morbidness. Sorry for that. Just keeping it real.

The point of all these? I don’t know. I was just really overwhelmed with romantic stories in the span of eight hours. And I loved it. I was kinda lonely since Saturday. It’s still cold in the office. No signs of warmness whatsoever. Now that destiny played its trick on us, I’m in her team. This is your doing, Cupid, you son of a bitch! Fix it, please. This is serious. I even forgot about Bes’ graduation. And you do not forget graduations!!! Not your bestfriend’s. Tsk tsk. But she doesn’ t need to know that. Hehehe.

Like what Hannah said to me, “This is what happens if you make other plans. This is what happens when you lose your way and derail yourself. That’s strike two! Quit your foolishness and stick to the original plan.” I don’t think so. For now, this new plan seems to be more promising than the original one. Not that I’m dismissing the initial one, just keeping my options open. After all, I’m a substitute. Watch Elizabethtown to find out what a “substitute” means.

“This is what happens if you make other plans. This is what happens when you lose your way and derail yourself. That’s strike two! Quit your foolishness and stick to the original plan.”

Have you watched that movie?
Sub ka din ba?! Wehehehe. Well.. Haynaku!

So the Queen has another plan pala. Nice nice. Gets interesting yet again. Haha. Iniisip ko nga, since my original plan ai for long-term, enjoy "other plans" first na lang muna. Daba daba? Hehehe.

Sabi daw ni Sam, she finds it boring. Hmm..I guess, since walang action nor explosions or whoa moments. Pero the thing is, I find it perfect. Minsan lang ako matuwa sa mga ganitong kinds of movies. Parang yun "Before Sunset" and "Before Sunrise" na lagi ko pinagtatanggol. Hehe. **Le Sigh**

"Side Plans" muna. Bata pa tayo. Haha!
